Richard Kiel (1939-2014), Film and Television Actor Most Famous as "Jaws" in James Bond


Recommended Posts

To Richard Kiel and Bill Meehan.

*Bill, you'd be happy to know that I was drinking Bud Heavy last night in your honor.

Most of us remember 7'2" Richard Kiel as the lovable, bumbling assassin who played "Jaws" in the third and fourth James Bond films starring Roger Moore"The Spy Who Loved Me," and "Moonraker."


Kiel, however, was a good enough actor where he had several parts written for him, and one I remember best is the space alien in The Twilight Zone's 1962 Episode, "To Serve Man." <--- THE FULL EPISODE IS JUST BELOW *** SPOILERS - if you ever want to watch this, and you should if you haven't, don't open this link. ***


In fact, I may even watch "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "To Serve Man" again today, in Mr. Kiel's honor.

There are huge numbers of tribute Tweets today, honoring Kiel, with many websites highlighting celebrity tweets.
